children sit apart at christmas

    Is anyone else required to sit at the “children’s table” during celebrations with your family? If the answer is yes, don’t worry because children of the british royal family they still have one more obligation: they cannot sit in the same room as the other adults in their family. Are you freaking out? We do.

    Zara Tindall’s husband and Princess Anne’s son-in-law, Mike Tindall, has been in charge of revealing this information during an appearance on the ‘House of Rugby’ podcast through The Sun. He has explained that the children of the British royal family remain completely separated from the rest of the family at Christmas dinner, partly because there are a lot of people. As he has said: “At the family meal there must be about 70 of us there. There are seven tables and then the kids have their own space in a different room.”

    Yet why do we get the feeling that Prince Louis completely runs the show at the little ones’ table?

    Regardless, Mike and Zara (and their kids!) joined the rest of the royal family for the annual Sandringham Christmas Stroll and turned up looking very festive:

    Other attendees included King Charles and Queen Camilla, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and Prince William and Kate Middleton. This was the first time William and Kate had made the walk as Prince and Princess of Wales (their fancy new titles) and also the first time his son, Prince Louis, attended. Unsurprisingly, the little one wore knee-high socks for the occasion because he’s such a style icon.
